Just for fun: Republicans hate Americans (but not their wives!)

KO noted this tonight:

Joe Wilson (R-SC; "You Lie!") yesterday:
Joe Wilson: Obama Should Be ‘Held Responsible’ for Swine Flu Vaccine Shortage
Monday, November 02, 2009
By Matt Cover, Staff Writer
Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) says President Obama should “be held responsible” for the government’s lack of preparedness in addressing the swine flu epidemic. Wilson said this was one crisis Obama could not blame on any other administration.
Commenting on this article, NewsVine notes,
This is an amusing article. What it fails to mention is that Wilson voted against the Supplemental Appropriations Bill, which would've devoted $2 billion to fight H1N1 as well as other pandemics. And somehow, that translates to the President's fault.
... then there's this revelation:
Joe Wilson's wife Roxanne has been diagnosed with swine flu...
Ah, yes: Wilson blames Obama for lack of preparedness only when Wilson's wife gets the flu... Cleverly concealing the fact that he voted against funding swine flu preparedness!!!

Ain't the Republican party GRAND!
(They are, after all, the GRAND OLD Party.)
